Last week my nephew asked me how Santa was going to come into our house if we do not have a chimney.  I was so excited because I'd followed Emma's (MCT) blog hop (12 Days of Christmas)  and I remembered the Magic Key project made by Vicki of VK Create.   I then made the project using her poem.  H was sooo happy, as was I also because he truly believed Santa would be able to  come in and leave gifts because he was a good boy, and knew he was on Santa's good list.
The products I used for this project are: Red and White cardstock; grungeboard key by Tim Holtz; Martha Stewart red glitter on the key; red stickles around the trimming of the tag; red ribbon and grommet by We R Memory Keepers and chipboard pieces by Brenda Walton.  I used a black felt tip marker to write the poem.  This project was so much fun and easy to make and now Nicholas (my nephew) knows to leave the Magic Key for Santa.  I want to thank Emma of MCT and Vicki of VK Create for all the great ideas and their inspiration.  

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Please leave a comment.

I apologize my pictures are not very clear.  Well, yesterday was the last day of the 12 Day Christmas Hop by Emma of MCT and her DT.  It was SOOOO MUCH FUN and I am so happy I participated.  I got so many wonderful ideas during this hop.  The tree below being one of them.  I am making this as a gift for my nephew's school teacher.  

I took a styrofoam tree shape and simply added mini chocolate Hershey's, soft peppermints, mini candy  cane ornaments, white fun fur yarn, and pointsettas.  I pinned everything down with pearlhead straight pins.   

At the top of the tree I used a chipboard Angel, attached a popicle stick on the back and added white feathers.   I really enjoyed making this and hope to get many more projects done by Christmas.  Thank you so much for stopping by.  Please feel free to leave a comment.

My nephew had a birthday party to go to for a friend and he asked me to make him a card.  His friend turned 14 y.o. 

 Materials I used to make this card: Me&My Big Ideas Specialty cardstock; Tim Holtz Angel Wings Die; Perfect Pearls (Blue) on the wings; and Glimmer Mist (Dazzling Diamonds) also on the wings; I used the Beyond Birthdays cart for Happy Birthday and I also used a Sizzix die for the candle inside the flip on the outside of the card; and lastly I used gold metallic cardstock on the candle for the flame.

 I hope his friend loved the card as much as I enjoyed making it for him.
